Click here for Episode 22

The priestess of Apollo will answer your questions, if not how you expect.

 

Will Athens survive the war with the Persians? Should Sparta march to help? Will you enjoy this episode on the Oracle of Delphi in Greece, featuring the brilliance of Alison Innes and Darrin Sunstrum from the MythTake podcast and Lantern Jack from Ancient Greece Declassified? Yes. Yes you will.

We'll talk about the Oracle, how it came to be and how it worked. We'll follow the Greeks in their war with the Persians.

 

We'll visit Delphi and eat roast lamb and greens. You won't need gas rising from the temple floor to enjoy this one!
